I was looking for a blank piece of paper and found this journal entry from 2007 instead.

August 22, 2011

Notable item #1 would be the totally punk rock hairdo on the elderly man. We were in Amsterdam.

We were boarding a city jumper to Berlin, and onto the plane walked an older man (70?) in a very nice navy blue suit and with hair standing straight up. I wouldn’t know how much gel would be necessary to get hair of that length (8 inches?) to stay up that perfectly.

Michael asked me if I saw the hair and as I turned to him to answer in the affirmative, the elderly man’s companion caught my eye. She brought her hand up and started smoothing his hair down.

He wasn’t so punk rock after all. Just a man with a comb-over on a windy day.
